"On behalf of the Colorado Avalanche, I would like to congratulate Jean-Sebastien on an outstanding hockey career," executive vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic said. "His achievements speak for themselves, from winning the Stanley Cup to winning the Conn Smythe, Jiggy was always a top-notch goaltender. He was also a very important part of our team during the past three seasons, providing veteran leadership and stability in net. We wish him and his family the best of luck."

Giguere was a first-round pick (No. 13) of the Hartford Whalers in the 1995 NHL Draft and finished with a record of 262-216-50 with 25 ties, a 2.53 goals-against average, a .913 save percentage and 38 shutouts for the Whalers, Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks, Toronto Maple Leafs and Avalanche. He also went 17 with a 2.08 GAA and .925 save percentage in 52 playoff games.

With the Avalanche, Giguere spent the past three seasons primary as a backup. He played in 72 games for Colorado and went 31-21-8 with a 2.51 GAA and .914 save percentage. He also went 11-6-1 in 22 games last season with 2.62 GAA and two shutouts.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Avalanche are 18/1 to win the 2015 Stanley Cup and 10/1 to win the 2015 Western Conference. The 2014-15 NHL regular season will kick off on October 8.
